Aswan is, in our opinion, the most beautiful of Egypt’s Nile cities. The sands of the Sahara sweep down right to the shores of the Nile. You will see countless felucca sailing boats on the water. Stay at the fantastic Old Cataract hotel for the quintessential Egyptian experience. The archaeology in Aswan largely dates from the later Ptolemaic era. It is also known as the location for the Aswan Dams. The first was opened in 1902, and the second in 1971. Lake Nasser was created as a result, and it is worth seeing this impressive manmade lake. The Temple of Philae is a must, as too the granite quarries where you can see the unfinished obelisk.
This is just an overview of the hotels and lodges we feature, from characterful boutique lodges to luxury hotels. We do have a range of other hotels that we use, so if you don't see from our portfolio what you are looking for, we almost certainly know about it and can help plan an itinerary using it.
This is a selection of experiences that allow you to see the destination in new and interesting ways. Almost all our experiences include a private guide, and can be then tailored to your particular interests. Indeed, many of the experiences we offer are created individually for our guests, so this list is by no means conclusive. In fact, we leave a couple of our best ideas up our sleeves for when you enquire with us.
